The passing of light through the foliage of Begonia 'Autumn Ember' enhances their orangey-red colour and makes it a wonderful statement. Its unique colourations represent autumn colours and it is a hybrid between Begonia 'Marmaduke' and Begonia 'Angel Glow', two very attractive cultivars. Just like a typical Begonia, it requires ample sunlight to be able to thrive and slight drying out between waterings.
Light: Place the plant in a well-ventilated area whereby it can receive 4-6 hours of bright (preferably indirect) sunlight daily.
Water: Once a day, water the plants thoroughly till excess water drains out of the pot. Do not allow the potting substrate to dry out completely.
Temperature: Plant tolerates temperatures from 18-28°C.
Fertilizer: An all-purpose, water-soluble balanced fertilizer that contains equal amount of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium (e.g. N-P-K: 15-15-15 +TE) will help to boost plant's overall health by feeding it every two weeks. Otherwise, a slow-release fertilizer (e.g. Osmocote) can be incorporated into the potting media, and to be replenished after about 2-3 months. Do follow the recommended dosage indicated on the fertilizer’s application instructions.
